Roaches Joinery always meets the requirements placed on it by building control, local planning authorities and environmental demands. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver a range of bespoke products to satisfy all needs: From single glazed traditional windows in period properties to double glazed windows that work towards meeting aesthetic, architectural specification.
This traditional single glazed sliding sash on weighted pulleys was a replication of the existing windows in this village center cottage. Glazed in Polish cyinder glass to replicate the ripples and pits indicative of historic glass.
Here the requirement was for a Victorian sliding sash on weighted pulleys that retained its original integrity but was to be double glazed and draft sealed. Double glazing often results in a heavy glazing bar that can detrimentally effect the visual appearance of a window. Our system provides a slimline glazing bar that more closely matches original sash design and makes a double glazed window that is an acceptabe design in a conservation area.
